What, you’re not celebrating yet? Well it’s time to get started! This year’s theme is “Eat Right With Color.” I love the color theme because it inspires all kinds of creativity in what you put on your plate.
Think of your typical meals. How many colors do they include? Maybe 1 or 2? Why not try to put 4 or 5 different colors on your plate? Make it fun! See how many you can get into one meal and leave the number in the comment section. Let’s have a little contest! If you have a particularly beautiful or colorful plate that you would like to share, post it on the Inspired RD Facebook wall or Flickr group for all of us to admire.
Now remember, we are talking about natural colors here, not food coloring. Here are some ideas in each color to get you thinking:
-red bell peppers
-orange bell peppers
-yellow bell peppers
-yellow summer squash
-green bell peppers
So get those creative minds thinking and come up with the most colorful plate that you can. Leave a comment with the number of different colors you fit onto one plate. And post photos of your gorgeous plates to Facebook or Flickr. I will post them on my next blog post about National Nutrition Month. Go!
